to our Asia trip. We got to play with the drone a little until we got in trouble for it 😹
Guys, it’s #worldpenguinday
🐧 and I couldn’t miss that. After becoming intimately familiar with millions of #penguins
in Antarctica earlier this year, this is my favorite way to see them - far enough away that you can’t smell them. 😂 These cute Adelies are fun and playful and probably a favorite penguin breed.
Colorado is still beautiful. 🌄
Remembering dinner with @rmontecino
last month in London! We live in the same country and never see each other, yet have dinner in another continent. Life.🤷🏻♀️
This is a very popular swimming pound! Any guess? Anyone from Washington?
My Chicago celeb sighting: Marina City towers, aka the 🌽 cobs, aka “that Wilco cover,” were the tallest residential and concrete structures in the world when they were finished in 1963. Been wanting to see these guys for years, and yeah, I geeked out pretty hard when I did. 👉🏼 for more 🤓
Mới 8h sáng thôi mà nắng qué 🥵
My next trip is to Salt Lake City, UT for a photo shoot. I’ve never been. Any suggestions on photogenic places around SLC or Moab? Preferably places that are a super easy hike to get to.
—a vision seen in sleep; a dream.
“Just remember that sometimes, the way you think about a person isn’t the way they actually are.”
I had a dream last night.
I met a girl and she had my name and my face, but she was not me—she had a gentle bravery in her eyes, some stubborn determination in her gait and the grace of a woman so sure of herself. She was smart and funny, so funny; when she laughed, you felt like you had known each other in another life—like you had erstwhile fallen asleep to the coda of her laughter. She knew who she was, and was unafraid of being so. She was well-rounded, well-spoken and well-loved, with a lively life behind her, and a full heart to carry her into a life far from lifeless.
And when I asked her from whence she came, she smiled wistfully, “I think you know. Isn’t that who you feel like, when Dimitri’s soul touches yours?”
But that was not the end of the dream.
“Wait until you meet the others,” she added, with a twinkle in her eyes.
(I could find myself, and probably lose my mind meandering the crowds of “me’s” generated by everyone who’s ever had an impression of me.
But I won’t.)

Never saw the sun shining so bright
Never saw things going so right
Noticing the days hurrying by
When you’re in love, my how they fly

Impromptu lunch date before I flight out tomorrow🍽
On hollidays you can do what you want
You wouldn’t believe how lush and green some of the madrassas are in Uzbekistan. I guess that’s the upside to all this rain! This one is Kukeldash, built in 1570 by the Shaybanid dynasty. It has been rebuilt several times over the years but survived the big 1966 earthquake that flattened most of Tashkent. Over the years, it has served as a caravansai, a fortress, a folk music museum, an atheism museum, and now, once again, a madrassa and shopping bazaar.
Rookie movie of the week: booked my flight south BEFORE getting to Pai and now I don’t want to leave 👎🏼
A night of worship with Matt Maher. It was a beautiful evening & was so good for our hearts 💛
This is my bud @jamesharnoisphoto.
We met up recently to do the amazingly gorgeous drive from Monterey to Morro Bay on Highway 1. James is an incredible photographer, and recently made the switch to being a full time freelancer. We have similar personalities - quiet natured, not exactly animated or exuberant, but totally stoked on and dedicated to our work as outdoor adventure photographers. Oftentimes the photography industry tells us you have to act a certain way to be successful, and that “certain way” isn’t really us. We’ve both felt it and it sometimes makes you feel like you don’t have a place in this industry. But I’ve never felt the need or had the desire to be anything I’m not. Having a quiet nature does not equate to timidness or uncertainty. Why would it??? Being introverted shouldn’t pigeonhole you within a set group of personality traits. “Introversion” is a singular thing, we’re way more beyond that. I’ve had incredible shoots with clients who understand that. So ya, I think we’re doing just fine. 🤷♀️✌🏼 // Here’s some shots taken on my Mamiya 6 as we were trying to figure out how to work his old Polaroid.
So very Charleston. Limehouse Street
10 years ago we got married. And I still can’t wait for our next date. To the store or out to dinner. Or to take a picture like this laying on God knows how much bird poop. (Thanks babe 😘)
He is the best thing. Happy 10 years to us.

Happy Earth Day!
This very popular and famous Chinese Garden is located in Chinatown in Vancouver, BC.
Built in 1985, Dr. Sun Yat-Sen’s Classical Chinese Garden is the first of its kind outside of China. Entry to the public park is free; however, there is an admission fee for the garden and is definitely worth checking out.
As the climate in Vancouver is similar to that of Suzhou, you will be able to enjoy many of the same plant varieties in this garden. They were chosen according to their blossom schedules and furthermore, to invoke the symbolic, historical, and literary meaning of each plant.
Q: What was your favourite part of this beautiful sanctuary?
Until next time, keep dreaming, traveling, exploring and spreading your footprints.
